Pollinator Garden 

by Dorte Windmuller

Serves the Greater Toronto Area and is located in the Bluffs in Toronto. Pollinator Garden is run by Dorte, who has made herself a name as a passionate gardener, community builder, native plant advocate, composter and soil explorer.

My love for native plants started in 2016 when I added flowerbeds to my all-lawn garden. I chose native plants and was shocked at how fast they returned abundant life into my garden. This made me realize how much we hurt nature and, consequently, ourselves when we replace native plants that are interconnected with all life with lawns and ornamental plants. Seeing a powerful solution for climate change and biodiversity loss, I co-founded the Cliffcrest Butterflyway in 2020 and the Pollinator in 2023.
